Anyone heard from our trusts yet?
No not yet! Guessing we won't hear from Monday, so potentially interviews from Wednesday if they are nice and give 2 days notice! How is everyones interview prep going?

Hi!

I got allocated to Berkshire. Just wondering if anyone knows what they mean by 'behaviours'? Not really sure how to prep for that.

Yeah they should stick to that really! Not too bad, think I'm feeling alright about the science questions but need to improve on the second section...

Congratulations! So these questions were asked to a mate of mine last year when she interviewed for cardiac...

Tell me about a time when you’ve showed compassion
Tell me about a time when you’ve made a decision that was unpopular
If you were a patient how would you like to be treated
How do you manage stress


Might give you a bit of an idea? I guess it's them trying to gauge how you'd react in certain situations or what you're like as a person

Perfect, thank you! I'm more worried about the science questions as I haven't been over stuff in such a long time since I didn't think I'd get this far. Just hope they don't ask me anything which I haven't got a clue about how to answer

I'm sure you'll be fine! The NSHCS obviously considered your experience and knowledge base strong enough to rank you highly, so take confidence from that if you can!

j3m7r, do you mind me asking what your background/experience is? I ranked 46 so i'm basically definitely out of the running for this year but will be applying again next year and i'm just thinking about ways to strengthen my application in case we end up in a similar situation next year!

Mine's 2nd of June so I've got a bit more prep time. I reckon I'd have liked it at the end of this week to get it done but can't complain! Hope you hear soon

Got my interview tomorrow morning, so nervous! No idea what they’re going to ask or how much specialism knowledge they’ll expect. Good luck everyone having interviews this week!
